Yes you read that properly. That is $8000 in just drivers and 50,000 watts of amplification. He originally did a sealed system but although it could kick 4 Seaton submersives in the teeth it wasn't enough for him. So he ported them in monster boxes with a 15hz tune. Haha. That's nuts. It's so beyond crazy it's laughable.
Interesting. The most nuts I know is a friend of mine in Stockholm ( the guy who made the cabinets for my stone speakers ), who's using the same elements as I will, but while I will have 6 sealed, he's got 24 mounted 2 and 2 to cancel vibrations. That's close to $20,000 for the drivers....(If the subwoofers would have been bought assembled instead of built as DIY, it would have been $100,000...)
Powered by 6 NAD 208, so only about half the possible power of above, but still enough to destroy one of his windows with the Telarc 1812.
Here's the stack... four elements in each... inspected by the original designer (Ingvar Öhman, Ino audio/Guru audio)
Here's a little better pic of how elements are mounted, but you really don't see the opposing element very well:
and here's his front speakers, Ino i68es-s, about a quarter ton of stone...
Oh, and did I mention this is an apartment ?
( Unfortunately I haven't heard this setup yet. )
